If you want to know what an action-packed full life sounds like just listen to this interview with Andy Briggs. He was born in a Bradford pub, grew up in Bradford, Guiseley and Yeadon and has a passion for Tibetan Mastiffs!

Andy is a family man and an accomplished landscape gardener. You must hear the story about when the phone rang and it was Emmerdale Farm on the other end!

A lively interview with a very nice man.

Recording this social history, chatting to different people about a whole host of subjects is a real pleasure, such an interesting and I think worthwhile project for people to listen to both now and in years to come.

You know what it’s like, everything costs money!

If you feel like you could make a donation of any size to help me I would really appreciate it.

Thank you.
